Enyaq Helps to Kick Start The New Agency Model

One of the most prevalent subjects in today’s news is that of climate change and the effect that the internal combustion engine is having on our planet. With the billions of cars currently on the road this is one area where a huge gains can be made in terms of the “human” carbon footprint and Skoda’s announcement that from today the new electric ENYAQ can only be ordered online is a step in that direction.  

Agency style dealerships have already been adopted by several manufacturers now and it’s no secret that the Volkswagen group is heading in the same direction. As a valued family member the Skoda brand remains committed to adopting agency sales and is planning to switch to that business model for its electric vehicles before the year is out.

They also predict that as demand for petrol and diesel vehicles falls, the firm will eventually switch entirely to agency sales, a system currently being adopted in countries such as Spain and Germany. 

Whilst a full inventory of electric vehicles is inevitable, it won’t happen overnight and the brand is set to reveal new versions of its Kodiaq SUV and Superb estate shortly, with both having petrol, diesel and plug-in hybrid engines. 

It will also introduce new battery-powered models while remaining ‘committed to vRS’, which is Skoda’s performance sub-brand. 

CEO Claus Zellmer has said openly that relationship with its siblings creates healthy competition which ultimately benefits the consumer when it comes to creating cars on the same platform. 

Which ever method customers choose they can be sure that the team at Lightcliffe will support them whatever their buying journey.

Clare James Automotive Limited is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 497010). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allow Clare James Automotive Limited to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.
We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes Volkswagen Financial Services. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to Volkswagen Financial Services, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and Volkswagen Financial Services also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms, and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
